Instructions for Writing a Research Article Report
Research articles are an important tool that researchers use to present their findings to the scientific community. Please follow the guidelines below if you would like to earn credit by reading and critiquing a research article.
- Write a report on the article that is at least 350 words in length. In this report, you should explain:
- What the research questions and/or hypotheses were that the paper addressed.
- The methods the author(s) used to examine the research questions (e.g., measures that were used, the sample that was used, etc.).
- What the authors found.
- The implications of those findings (e.g. how the findings add to theory and literature, how they might impact practice, or real world-consequences for the findings).
- The report should be written in paragraph form using a professional and scientific voice (e.g., avoiding first person voice, slang, clichés, colloquialisms, and value judgments).
- You must list the title of the article on your report.
- An electronic copy of your Research Article Report must be emailed to the TA, Emily Shaffer, firstname.lastname@example.org. The report should be sent as an email attachment. Acceptable file forms include .doc, .docx, and .PDF. Please include the words Research Article Report in the subject line of the email.
- 1 – 2 weeks after your turn in your report, you will receive credit on Sona if the report was properly completed.
- Each report is worth 1 SONA point.
